BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT

Following these steps will help ensure that your treatment goes to plan.

·     Avoid all blood-thinning medications and supplements for one week before your appointment. This includes over-the-counter medication such as Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, and Aleve.  

·      Avoid herbal supplements such as garlic, vitamin E, Ginko Biloba, St. John's Wort, and omega-3 capsules.  If you have a cardiovascular history, please check with your doctor before stopping use of aspirin. 

·      Inform your provider if you have a history of Perioral Herpes or cold sores to receive advice on antiviral therapy before treatment. (Valtrex 500 mg BID, five days, start two days before treatment)

·      Avoid topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A) retinol, retinoids, glycolic acid, alpha hydroxy acid, or any "anti-aging" products for two days before and after treatment.

·      Avoid alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy foods, and cigarettes 48 hours before or after your treatment to avoid extra bruising.
